<giggle> Jerry Coleman, who used to be the play-by-play guy for the San
Diego Padres, was famous for such dangling clauses. My favorite, which I'll
never forget, went something like this, after the fellow up at bat hit one
to deep center field: "There's a deep fly ball...Winfield [or somebody]
goes back, back...ow, his head hits the wall...now it's rolling towards
second base." I think they put Coleman out to grass shortly after I moved
away from San Diego, which is too bad; he goofed up a lot but he had
personality, and most of the newer guys doing play-by-play sound like they
all graduated from the same school.
